Welcome to Sound Read Six - Where new music comes to you.
The Bellwether Syndicate
Nexilis Records / Sett Records
Already charting at number 4 in the DAC / German Alternative Chart, the second single from the phenomenal Vestige and Vigil album, Beacons hits streaming sites and the media with force. Based in Chicago, the US alternative-rock and post-punk outfit are influenced by bands like Placebo, New Model Army, and Killing Joke. Made up of a plethora of local talent, William Faith on vocals on guitar, Sarah Rose Faith on vocals and guitar, Philly Peroxide on keyboards and percussion, Stevyn Grey on drums, and Corey Gorey on guitars, the band projects perfection in sound from this well-oiled machine. Formerly of Christian Death, Mephisto Walz, and Shadow Project, frontman William Faith joined the Chicago scene from his Los Angeles home in 2010 and with The Bellwether Syndicate he and the band have never looked back.
Powerful surging guitars open the track as drums smash the temp down in clear and vibrant bursts of snare and cymbal. The bass chugs the rhythm down like tasty liquor as the music evolves to greet the verse. Melodic guitar ring out in spirals of sound as the lyrics draw us in for a gothic poem. The words evoke dream and mystery as the music boils over for the chorus. Chords crash down through the ceiling to push the tide out further with punchy rock motifs. Wailing sombre delivery with tuneful bass end melody gives a unique edge to the song, as guitars and drums hold the treble in check with continual drive. Energetic and evocative, Beacons from The Bellwether Syndicate surges with fiery purple magic.
